Even you could make this! Snowball block tutorial

Do you have loads of little scraps of fabric that you just can't let go? Little pieces that just are too lovely to throw away because they're not big enough really for a full project?

There are a few in my stash.




Recently I made a tea cozy and fell in love with the fabric... but there was still a fat quarter left.











..then picked out another 5 to go with it...



Snowballs are easy! Even my boyfriend got in on the action... Maybe I had to bribe him with that Skor bar.. but it worked!
Here's a quick and easy snowball tutorial.




First you cut a 8 inch square and four 2 3/4 inch squares.




Place one small square on the corner and draw a line from corner to corner. ( You can eye this up when you sew.)





Sew



Cut to a 1/4 inch from your seam.





And Iron!!




I'm making a tablecloth. What will you do with yours?
